The basics

Osaka is known regionally as the “kitchen of the nation.” So it’s only natural that there would be an entire structure dedicated to eating. Originally a section of pilgrimage route between Hozenji Temple to the north and Shitennoji Temple to the south, Sennichimae Doguyasuji began to transform into a commercial shopping area by the late 1800s.

The shopping arcade is where many of Osaka’s chefs go to purchase cookware and other kitchen equipment, and is where you’ll find (and perhaps purchase) the plastic food replicas seen in restaurant window displays across Japan.
